Abstracted landscape just after sunset marked by brilliant orange and red clouds in the dark blue background. Layers of blues, purples, greens and orange in horizontal stripes and blocks. Fields in the foreground and a body of water merging with the horizon in the middle ground.
During the day, Srinivas Kathoju is a full-time software engineer. However, his art reflects another side of his personality; a passion for painting, a love of nature, and a desire to depict the vastness and majesty of the landscape. What makes his paintings unique is the way they incorporate several styles of art. The abstracted compositions have the soft atmosphere of an impressionist landscape, combined with the flat bold shapes of a post-war modern painting. Additionally, there is an ambiguity to the composition. The eye may easily register the painting as a landscape, but struggle to identify the horizon line and other landmarks within the piece. Is the block of turquoise running the length of the canvas a river, or just another line of color within the layers of stacked shapes?

Beautiful composition with warm, rich color.- N Masters
"Blue Lake" has a kind of about-to-rain feel. Once again a sophisticated use of colour. Emergent forms on the right grouped with De Stael-like precision.- J Wilson
